Funky Readers partners with PAPP UP
Funky Readers are pleased to announce that we have recently secured the opportunity to stock PAPP UP eye wear, created by Berlin-based designer Cantemir Gheorghiu.
Described by ZEIT Online as being created from ‘just a piece of paper and a good idea’, PAPP UP glasses are created from a mixture of pressed wood and avant-paper; available in a wide range of colours and styles.
Hand-made in Berlin, in a facility which provides work for a large number of disabled workers, PAPP UP glasses consist of 16 components and feature a range of practical considerations – including flexible strap ends, rubber-attached arms instead of hinges and one-piece manufacture.
The use of rubbers fixings instead of hinges allows the wearer to sit down with the glasses in their pocket without any risk.
In January 2011 Cantemir presented PAPP UP on a guerrilla cat-walk using a rolled out red carpet at Berlin Fashion Week. The glasses were a hit in Germany and Scandinavia, and we are very pleased to be able to offer them to our customers across the globe.
PAPP UP will be available on the Funky Readers website in the coming weeks - so check back soon!
